It has been three weeks since my last surgery where I had expanders put in to my chest cavity. These will be systematically filled with saline solution to create enough space for my implants later in May. I have named my new expanders Hans and Franz from the old Saturday Night Live skit. On the days when I go in to Pump Me UP I can just tell my staff we are having a Hans and Franz day.
The doc fills a super huge syringe with about 2 oz of saline solution and injects the solution through a metal disk that is under my skin. The whole process takes just a few minutes and looks much worse that it really is. I have three Pump Me Up days in March, then we let the expanders rest for a month, stretching the skin and making room for my new (Bob hopes DD) implants. Bob is gonna have to keep hoping.
